New streaming Product

Introducing two groundbreaking (Hilarious!!) products that promise to redefine the future of movie consumption on streaming platforms by extending the life of films and offering innovative features. In addition to the existing release sequence, which includes theatrical releases, digital and physical sales, streaming services, extended versions, director’s cuts, and anniversary editions, consider the following suggestions for the next steps in the evolution of streaming content:

1.  Director’s Suite Edition:

   Take control of your movie-watching experience with the Director’s Suite Edition. This revolutionary product empowers users to craft their own unique version of a film. Users can choose deleted scenes, incorporate new AI-augmented elements, reduce runtime, or rearrange sequences to tailor the movie to their preferences. To safeguard the original value, these custom versions remain within the streaming platform’s software and are time-limited. Not only limited to existing films, this suite opens up the possibility of creating purpose-made short films with multiple options for users to shape their own storylines. Share your creations with friends on the streaming platform for an immersive watch party experience.

   New Feature: Collaborative Storytelling – Invite friends to collaborate on creating a unique version of a movie, enhancing the social aspect of the Director’s Suite.

2.  Ultimate Reboot or Alternate Timeline Version:

   Studios often release multiple reboots or versions of a film, creating a complex array of storylines. Enter the Ultimate Reboot or Alternate Timeline Version, supported by an interactive timeline tool. This tool places reboots in alternative timelines, filling narrative gaps with interactive comics and storytelling elements. Viewers are presented with the studio’s suggested watch sequence or the alternate timeline. For those with additional content such as games, game stories, comics, or books, seamlessly link them to the films for a comprehensive and immersive experience.

   New Feature: Cross-Media Integration – Link movies, games, comics, and books to create a unified and expansive universe for viewers to explore.

These two products not only extend the life of movies on streaming platforms but also offer users unprecedented creative control and a deeper, more interconnected viewing experience. Embrace the future of entertainment with these groundbreaking innovations. Now the Elephant in the room : the User see; Simplifying Streaming with an Aggregator Service Part 5: The user centric POV.
